This week in Rowans by OG and AT

admin on: Rowans

The last few weeks we have been doing lots of rehearsing for our production of Bugsy Malone.  There have been lots of extra rehearsals so we haven't been doing as much work!  The three performances went well.  We hope every body enjoyed them.

In Literacy we have finished our work on Harry Potter so Mr Moorhouse is letting us watch the movie.

Maths has been all about fun puzzles.  We have been doing a mixture of all sorts including mystery puzzles where we have had to solve the clues to solve the mystery.

We have been playing cricket in PE and doing lots of catching.  Also we have been playing fireball and Danish longball.

Our Week by AT and PM

admin on: Rowans

In Maths we have done two maths tests! We have also been working on right angles and angles. 

We have done lots of recapping as it is nearly the end of the year.

Literacy has been about Harry Potter and we have done a few assessed pieces. We have been focussing on description and written about Hedwig the owl. We have looked at the moral of a fairy tale too.

In Science we have been planning and then doing the experiment and then writing up the conclusion. One of the experiments was about separation.  How could we separate sand and salt from water?  We evaporated the water and put on some paper.

PE with Project Sport was improving our catching skills and we have also done Zumba.

Harry Potter and the Indus Valley by GW and BW

admin on: Rowans

Literacy has been all about Harry Potter.  We have written a diary entry as Harry Potter about the day before he goes to Hogwarts.  We also did a descriptive piece of writing about when Harry Potter went to Olivander's Wand Shop to buy a wand.  We included lots of speech in this and used the correct punctuation.

In Maths we have been working with shapes. We have been reflecting shapes and moving them within a grid.  This is called transition, the shape doesn't change just the position.

We have been doing History in Topic and have been learning about the Indus Valley (BW has done lots of research about this!)

The Indus Valley was in the Bronze age and reaches from as far as Pakistan to East Afghanistan.  Its made up of 3 tribes.  They used seals for trading and made toys too.

We have been working hard in Maths and Literacy this week.

admin on: Rowans

We have been strengthening our understanding on efficient ways to add and subtract in our maths lessons and we are getting really confident using the column method. We are looking forward to trying out these methods in some problem solving activities.

In our literacy we have been looking at spelling structures and adding prefixes and suffixes to words.

We are also using mare varied punctuation in our sentences and lots of question marks have been used this week.
